The manufacturers
of tomorrow

Manufacturing is a key sector in our economy. To address the skills shortage and attract young talent, it’s crucial to highlight the industry’s technological advancements, job diversity and creative opportunities.

Apprenticeships, mentorship programmes, and partnerships with educational institutions can bridge the skills gap and make manufacturing THE choice for young people entering the workforce.
